Question about Pentax K1000 35mm SLR Camera
I'd like to know how to disemble the camera without harming it to see what's the problem. i'm normally fairly handy with those problem once i know where to start.
It's my daughter that is using it in her class and she's assuring me that nothing happened.
Sounds like the film might have been and wound but not exactly straight, almost hard to do but it can happen.
You don't have to disassemble, Most film cameras have a button on the bottom directly below the winder that you hold in to disengage the gear thaat winds the film, like a clutch, so you could unwind or rewind, that's how you could get some double exposures back in the day. The other thing you can do is (if you don't want to save the exposed film is to open it in a light proof bag if you have one - if not take it to a camera repair shop and they can open it without damaging the camera and even salvag the film, just make sure you call them and describe the problem and negotiate the price before they do the work. You will both be happier that way.
